With London Fashion Week taking place later this month, it's time to discover...which style are you?
If you grew up in the 90’s and thereafter (some site the porn industry as a cause) removing your pubic hair probably started as soon as you started high school. For many, the idea of any curly hairs sprouting from skimpy swimwear is simply not an option, and when it comes to the bedroom – an unruly nether region is often thought to be a rather lazy and unhygienic option.
Ladies, you are part of a major industry where the choices of how you can style your lady hair are endless, and often a bit confusing. And with ‘everyone to their own’ when it comes to how he or she likes you to maintain your lady garden, like the fashion industry itself, there seems to be an ever-changing trend in what is fashionable downstairs, and what a woman feels comfortable with both socially and sexually. With Fashion Week just around the corner here are six options to choose from so you can achieve the ultimate secret accessory and wow your lover.
1. The Brazilian
Also known as The Hollywood or The Sphinx, this is 'The King' of all waxes. Not recommended for a wax virgin, this involves removing all the hair both around the pubis and anal area. It came about in 1987 via seven sisters from Brazil, which is where its name derives. In some countries such as Iran, being bare down there is the only option for many as it is thought to be more hygienic for sexual wellbeing, and generally more erotic. Only for the brave!
2. The Landing Strip
A must for scantily clad catwalk models and a popular wax for many of you, this is sometimes known as French Waxing or a Partial Brazilian Wax. Hair from the peri-anal area and labia may also be removed. Traditionally the hair is trimmed to the same width as your natural fold, and two to three finger-widths long just above the vulva, this is a very popular style for many – it keeps some of your natural womanhood and at the same time shows your partner your have made an effort for them as well.
3. The Big Bush
When you choose to do absolutely nothing with your bush and just remain completely natural this is a style in its own right. Sexual attraction comes in many forms and for some, to be completely natural is sexy for both. Some people say they like the scent the pubic hair holds or that it feels better and improves sensation for them during intercourse.
4. The Bermuda Triangle
Also known as The American, this is the removal of only the pubic hair that is exposed by a bikini and is a very popular option for many of you. The hair at the top of the thighs and under the navel can also be removed if necessary. The hair is trimmed and keeps the general shape of the pubic region, but is significantly less. This option is actually one of the easiest to do yourself, especially if you are choosing to shave rather than wax. All you need to do is shave down the general shape of the pubic region until you create the size you like and then trim down the length to achieve a really tidy look. A good last minute option if you are in a rush!
5. The Vajazzle
Like a bride on her wedding day, you sometimes want to go the extra mile for your partner on a special occasion such as Valentines Day or an anniversary to really make your 'garden' sparkle. Depending on your own sexual fantasies, or which occasion you are dressing downstairs for, your options to free-style are endless. Pubic personalisation, or a fairly new term that has come about ‘Vajazzling’ can involve anything from applying gems to your pubic area – which come in a variety of shapes and letters, to dying the hair a funky colour, or even adding a temporary tattoo. Pubic hair stencils are now available in a range of shapes and styles to offer assistance.
6. The Ultimate Fantasy
If you and your partner have a penchant for fantasy sex, then styling your nether regions in a secret style that only you both know about can be rather a turn on. Whether it's a popular character that your partner refers to you as (think Jessica Rabbit), or tying into a role play that you are trialing in your sex life, go wild and make that fantasy as personal as you can with a bespoke style down below to match.
Finally, here’s a bit of history for you…according to historyundressed.com, in the ancient Roman Empire, hair removal was often seen as an identifier of class. The wealthy women would remove their body hair with pumice stones, razors, tweezers and depilatory creams - having pubic hair was actually considered uncivilised for the higher classes. Whereas for some women in Korea, pubic maintenance has reached a new level with the latest craze being pubic hair implants. Yes, you heard right - pubic hair implants because people aren’t comfortable with the thickness of their hair. Each to their own.
